Fresh off guiding Putnam North to the Class 6A girls basketball state tournament, coach Brett McGee has resigned.
The Panthers finished the season 18-10 after a quarterfinal loss to Edmond Santa Fe. It was their first appearance in the tournament since 2010.
McGee said he is pursuing other career opportunities.
“I thought it was time to try another career now,” he said in an email. “I can always go back to teaching/coaching, and will probably end up doing so later on in life.”
McGee spent three seasons at Putnam North.
SHAWNEE’S JOHN JACOBS COMMITS TO EAST CAROLINA
Shawnee quarterback John Jacobs had gathered a unique set of offers, and now he has made his decision.
Jacobs announced on Twitter late last week that he had verbally committed to East Carolina, choosing the Pirates over Troy and Alabama-Birmingham, a trio of schools that rarely find their way to Oklahoma on the football recruiting trail.
Jacobs threw for 2,263 yards and 28 touchdowns as a junior, adding 1,122 rushing yards and 17 touchdowns. The 6-foot-1, 220-pound Jacobs has been clocked at 4.55 seconds in the 40-yard dash at college camps.
